Quiet Evenings - Poem by David Wood

Evening is a time to rest, to switch off, to stop,
Night time beckons, television to watch.
Catch a movie set in L.A. or Colorado,
Rome or London, with an interesting plot;
Young lovers eloping perhaps, running, on the go,
Perhaps watch a musical instead like Les Mis.

Time perhaps to write a love poem that’s sad,
Inspiring, and tugging the heart strings too
Or just spend the evening reading a book for fun
Nodding off and waking halfway through the night.

Some may enjoy spending their evenings also
Organising a holiday, finding somewhere far off
Dreaming of sandy beaches and rolling surf.
